I wonder how they decide which songs are off limits. Personally I think they should stay away from a song like easy wind, but it is a fun song...btw I always assumed that was a cover, but it's actually written by Hunter.

"I wonder how they decide which songs are off limits."
REALLY???

You think The Dead should limit their music and what they play?

Put limits on music? Isn't that contradictory to what the Grateful Dead always stood for?

No, just as in - some songs just don't sound right without Jerry. I can understand why one might want the Dead not to play certain songs, out of respect for their performances in the past.

well they have never played So Many Roads.. I wouldn't be surprised if that one is off limits.

Maybe The Dead haven't played it, but it's not off limits for Phil and Friends.

This might be the second time in my life ive ever been wrong. It's a strange feeling. Humility maybe?

I apologize average joe, next time I make a statement like that Ill make sure to do my homework and check it twice.

Regardless, it doesn't change my opinion that "the dead" should stay away from certain songs like so many roads, and a pigpen staple like easy wind.

Whats next two souls in communion? Blow Away? Might as well as this point I guess.

You've humbled me and disappointed me at the same time joe, thanks.

Hey, I'm just yanking your chain a little.
For what it's worth, while I was looking at setlists, I found that The Dead also played Days Between, Stella Blue, Birdsong, and Comes a Time among other singularly Jerry tunes.

Peace.

Dude, you are exactly right. I was in a contrary mood yesterday and I was going to take the opposite side of whatever anybody wrote.
And while I was talking out my ass, I wasn't allowing you your opinion. And for that I apologize.

Everybody here should be afforded equal rights to talk out their own ass. Sometimes I need to remember that.

Peace.
